HOUSTON (FOX 26) -
Less than one week after the Houston Police Department issued an alert to find a suspect in the sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl, police have confirmed that the wanted man was arrested in Thailand.
Forrest Wayne, 41, who was charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child on Nov. 13, was arrested in Thailand during the last weekend.
Police say Wayne served as a fitness instructor to a 13-year-old girl and engaged in "multiple sexual encounters" with her at a hotel on the Katy Freeway frontage road near Bunker Hill Road after calling her on the phone and sending text messages to her.
An extradition date to Houston for Wayne has not been confirmed.
